Sgoil Gàidhlig Bhaile an Taigh Mhóir is very pleased to announce the addition of Robert Bingham to our faculty for the 2019 – 2020 academic year. It’s an exciting hallmark in the growth of Sgoil Gàidhlig Bhaile an Taigh Mhóir that our student demand requires us to expand our faculty. It’s also an honor to work with Robert, who has a deep love of the Gaelic language and culture and a passion for the revitalization of the language.
Robert is a native of South Florida. He graduated in 2003 with a B/A Honours in Celtic Studies from Saint Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia, Canada where he learned Gaelic with Dr. Ken Nilsen and Catriona Parsons, as well as with the local community. In Cape Breton he had the opportunity to immerse himself in North American Gaelic culture. Robert received the Angus L MacDonald Scholarship to travel to Scotland, which he did in the summer of 2003. He currently lives with his wife and four children in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Robert is teaching one of our New Beginner classes, but even if you are not studying with him you are sure to see him around area events.
